The North American Regional Studbook lists this elephant with a Temporary Studbook Number, lacking "supporting documentation to validate their identity."

In 1952 (the first year of Woodcock's Performing Elephants) she was sold to Kelly-Miller to replace "Anna May". Her name was changed to "Marie" which I believe was Isla Miller's middle name.
